Carlos, honey, would you come in here? We need to talk to you about something. Carlos, you know that your stepfather and I love you very, very much and are so proud of you. I know it was difficult when we told you that Geoff was not your real father but it’s just beautiful how close you two have gotten over the years. But we think that it’s time that we told you what really happened to your father. I know that we told you that he was very ill and passed away but that sadly is not the truth. It hurt us, very deeply, to have to lie to you but we were afraid you couldn’t handle the truth.
When you were just a baby, your father got hired to go overseas to help open a theme park. The park was on an island. His job was to transport the attractions, specifically raising gates in between two cages, from one area to another. I don’t really know why it was necessary to have someone manually raise the gate while standing on top of it, but your father was proud of his new job.
Around the time the park was opening, your father was assigned to move one last crate before coming back home. Everything was going smoothly. Your father’s supervisor, Mr. Muldoon, was even there to make sure everything went according to plan. But there was a horrible accident. They tried so very hard to save your father but it was too late.
Oh Geoff, this is so hard.
Carlos, I know nothing, not even a $20 million court settlement, can bring your father back. Nothing can change the fact that your father was eaten by a velociraptor.
Just a reminder, I have a new 100 pack of blank coasters to do another set of pop culture watercolor pieces. I’m taking reservations and requests. $5 ea plus $1 s&h (if you’re buying multiples you won’t have to pay shipping for each one). I have 88 spots left. Get at me bros.
Unfortunately I had to cancel my appearance at Appleseed Con this weekend. Please go and support a great show!
Hey guys, here’s my set from the Logan Lounge last night. Working on some new bits so disregard the stuttering. Or don’t. I dunno.
I’ll be at Appleseed Con next month (May 11th) in Ft. Wayne, IN. I’ll have copies of Paper + Plastick’s Story/Song #2 that I wrote. I’ll also be doing commissions all day and I’m sure I have random merch lying around as well. See ya there!
I know it’s been a while but trust me, I’ve been busy.
The Aw Yeah Comics Kickstarter was such a success that they were able to finance the first 12 issues. Thank you to all that supported it.
I’ve also had a script approved for an upcoming anthology for Viper Comics. My script will be brought to life by the immensely talented Juan Arevalo.
I wanted to announce something real quick that’s not art or comics related. I don’t really mention it on here but I also do stand-up comedy. I have a showcase this upcoming Thursday (March 28th) at Gallery Cabaret in Chicago (Bucktown). I’ll be performing as part of this week’s Cupcake Comedy Cabaret, a comedy variety show hosted by comedian Casey Brown. It’s a mix of comedians, musicians, performers and occasionally some magicians and burlesque dancers and crazy stuff. It’s from 7-9 PM, it’s free and Gallery Cabaret is a great bar (Oh yeah, the show is 21+) with a great beer selection. So if you’re around, come on by and boo me or something. I should have some more info about the other performers soon.
Sound good? Great.
A taste of what’s to come.
I unfortunately will not be able to attend Ag47 & Atomic Sketch Present: Exquisite Corpse tomorrow because I don’t want to get everyone sick. But I urge everyone to attend and help this great cause.
Hey all, sorry it’s been a while! Holidays/post holidays are always hectic.
Where were we?
Today marks the release of Story/Song #2 (technically the first release but that’s a long story) for Paper + Plastick Records. It features words by me, art by Guy LeMay, colors by Peter Wonsowski, lettering by Matt Jordan and is based on the song “6’10” by Flatfoot 56. I’m very proud of the way the book turned out. It’s currently available as a digital download (including the song) for $1 but you can pre-order the physical copy (that comes with a code to redeem the digital version as well as the song) for $5 right now and they’re set to ship from P+P around January 21st. That can be purchased here.
This Saturday I’ll be taking part in a special Atomic Sketch event in conjunction with Ag47, a great mentoring programs for girls. All of the proceeds benefit them and it’s a wonderful cause to support. It’s going from 4-7 PM this Saturday at Challengers Comics + Conversation in Chicago. The weather is supposed to be great this weekend some come on down.
I’m currently getting my 24 Hour Comic from 2011 graytoned and I plan to self-publish it for a late winter release. More info soon.
I’ve also been asked to contribute to a project that I am extremely excited about and honored to be a part of. It will be announced in a couple weeks. I. AM. EXCITED.
I think that’s it for now. Later!
